Sweet 16 Birthday Party

The 16th Birthday for most young girls is a very special birthday. It is one that should be made memorable and there are many ways in which this can be accomplished.

Keep reading for some excellent birthday party ideas to make your daughter’s day shine.

While there are many friends that your daughter will have and many Sweet 16 parties she will attend you want to make her birthday party a little bit unique. For this reason there are several party ideas that will be mentioned below. You can elaborate on one theme or mix and match a few themes that capture your attention. Regardless any of these themes should be a little something special to make the day, or evening, a special event full of fond memories for your teen.

Throw a masquerade ball. This allows everyone to dress in costumes, dance, drink punch, and have a ball, figuratively of course. This can be a lot of fun and you can even have those in attendence make their own masks for the grand event even if you choose not to use costumes and go a little less formal. Use plenty of balloons to set the stage and make the evening quite an event.

You can have a spa event for an all girls sweet 16. This event would include having facials, pedicures, makeovers, and a great chick flick for the evening, followed, of course by copious amounts of Haagen-Dazs(r). A great way to do this is by approaching your favorite home party plan representative from a company such as Mary Kay or Beauty Control for the spa portion of the party (be sure to invite parents and have friends bring money to buy their favorite products). It’s a great way to get a makeover inexpensively and learn about proper application of cosmetics and which colors suit your needs.

If these ideas aren’t appealing, how about a Surf’s Up Sweet 16? Even if you aren’t near a beach you may discover that you can bring the feeling of the beach to your own back yard. Be sure to have surfboards to set the theme and plenty of tikki types of decorations and some excellent surfing music. You could take the event one step further and make it a luau. Use your imagination and make it an event to remember.

Make your Sweet 16 a Red Carpet Event. This is a great idea for a birthday party. It allows all your friends to make a grand entrance, that you can record with a video or digital camera in their beautiful dresses (you can go semiformal if finances are a concern), and can make great scrapbooks that everyone can take home if you have a computer, scanner, and printer at home. Don’t forget to create Oscar worthy goodie bags with great little gifts from the local party supply store or Bath and Body works. It’s a lot of fun as far as parties go and may be a little something new and different among friends.

There really is no one way that is right or wrong for celebrating your daughter’s Sweet 16. The important thing is that you create a budget and plan your party theme to fit within the scope of your budget. Even with limited funds you can have an excellent birthday bash for your teen on her sixteenth. The ideas above are a great place to start. Hopefully you will take one of these ideas and make it your own or at the very least have jump-started a few new and different ideas to add to your growing list of hits, near hits, and misses. You may just have the one hit that will make your daughter’s eyes light up.



Never Be Stuck For A Kids Birthday Party Theme Again!

Never Be Stuck For A Kids Birthday Party Theme Again!

All parents know that their children’s birthday parties are incredibly important. Not just for the child, but for you too. Every parent tries to outdo each other and have the best party for their child. Unfortunately, all of this pressure often prevents the parents from giving their child the party they want or deserve. Trying to come up with a new and unusual theme can be very difficult and the child can feel that their wishes are not being taken into consideration at all.

But stop! It doesn’t have to be like that! All children have something they love, be it a television show, a character or an object. For example, many children love Winnie the Pooh but for others it is trucks and wagons that excite them. Your child will tell you what they want for their party and it is almost certain that you can accommodate them easily.

The Internet has provided the world with ways of acquiring things they never thought possible. No longer do you have to rely on the local stores in your town. You can shop in the big cities without leaving the comfort of your home.

Once your theme has been chosen, you can search for online stores selling all manner of items which fit in that theme. One website I highly recommend for kids’ party items is Birthday Express, found at SuesPartySupplies.
Here you can shop by theme or browse a whole range of themes if you are sill unsure on what to base the party. Many of the themes have subgroups which enable you to purchase items featuring your child’s favourite character and personalised for their age or the event you are celebrating.

On this site you can buy decorations for your home and tableware, all adorned with the character of your child’s choice. For example, the Disney Princess range has goblets, plates, cutlery and wall banners and hangings, all featuring different princesses. There is eve the opportunity to buy a princess dress for your child, and this can be accessorised with a tiara and wand. There is even a piñata to accompany the theme. The prices are reasonable and you can order online for delivery to your home. This allows you to throw your child a party they will not forget, as well as removing the stress of organising the smallest details from the parent.
